Gold Christmas Basket

This arrangement is made in a basket, using dri-foam for the mechanics. It is made from dried and artificial materials.

Artificial gold fabric leaves give height, and to the right of these, some gold ting-ting has been threaded with gold beads. (See detailed picture below.)

Three gold candles give a festive look, but should not be lit as they are too close to the flammable dried and artificial materials used in the arrangement.

Some white Poinsettia forms the focal area, and cones, artificial grapes, a gold wicker ball, and other artificial materials have been added to give interest.

I have made some gold roses from folded shiny gold paper ribbon, and wired these together to form stems of small flowers. (See detail below.)
